Trenbolone is one of the most potent steroids on the market and is one of the most popular options for anyone looking to bulk up and add muscle. This is because of its many mechanisms of action, as well as it’s superb binding affinity.
Like most anabolic steroids, the main mechanism of action for Trenbolone involves it binding with the androgen receptors. This allows it to act like testosterone and thereby increase anabolism, hypertrophy, drive, energy, aggression and more.
On top of this, Trenbolone also increases protein synthesis in the muscles, prevents muscle breakdown via myostatin and even increases the appetite – it’s a dream for those looking to bulk.
But there is more than one type of Trenbolone and not all of them are made equal. So let’s take a look at the different types and what you need to know.
An Introduction to the Types of Trenbolone
So just why are there different kinds of Trenbolone? Ultimately, it comes down to very slightly different formulations which may vary – for example – in things like the binding agents used to turn the substance into an oral tablet.
Often the names – and the origins – will come from medical uses (or sometimes even veterinary!). For example, Trenbolone Acetate, in particular, is sometimes referred to as ‘fina’ which is due to its connection with ‘Finaplix H Pellets’, which was the original brand.
The different kinds of Trenbolone include Trenbolone Acetate, Trenbolone Enanthate, Trenbolone Parabolan and Tri Tren.
So what you probably really want to know is whether these different types vary in terms of their effectiveness or their risks? The answer, in this case, is that they do – but only slightly. All types of Tren work in the same way and have the same key benefits and risks.
However, only certain types of Trenbolone cause Tren cough (an irritating symptom that does what it sounds like). Tren Enanthate and Parabolan do not cause the symptom. This is likely to do with differences in the binding agents used.
Likewise, types of Tren can vary in terms of their half-life affecting how long they last and this, in turn, can have impacts on the strength. That said though, this can be mitigated by varying the cycle length and frequency – as well as by stacking and using other techniques.
One other big difference? Availability. Which of course links to price…
Risks and Alternatives
Ultimately though, when using any form of steroid and any form of Trenbolone, you are always taking a risk. Trenbolone causes liver toxicity, symptoms associated with high testosterone and impaired endogenous testosterone production – among other things. For this reason, you might want to consider other types of product entirely. For example, Trenorol from Crazy Bulk could be considered a ‘type of Trenbolone’ in some ways.
So how does this work? Simply, Crazy Bulk have used only natural ingredients in such combinations as to elevate testosterone and protein synthesis while suppressing myostatin and muscle catabolization. This way, they’re able to provide near-enough the same results with none of the associated risks!
